"Darling Egbon one,
We all missed you so much, but your memory brings us joy for all our mourning has been turned to joy by the comfort of the Holy Spirit. The memory of the life you lived gave us assurance that you are resting in the Lord and there is joy in heaven today as they remember the day you were sent to us mankind as a gift and it was obvious that you fulfilled purpose, touched and impacted lives.
Though in death,we remember your Golden Jubilee with joy. Sleep on beloved brother, friend and mentor, till we meet to part no more.
Mum though still in shock is comforted and missed you, same goes for Toyin, she is still so fond of you and talks about you at every slightest opportunity not in pains or regret but in the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
so are all the children, your siblings and their spouses and your in-laws missed you and we all thank God for your life while you are here.
Happy post humors birthday beloved."

"My brother of 47 years where will I start from? Hm..........God knows that your life was so short yet so impactful ....I love you,we love you but surely God loves you more. Rest on in the bosom of Jesus"

"Head or tail, we win;
Life or death, we triumph;
For our Abiodun,
death is gain;
You have gained life,
You have earned your reward;
You have fought a good fight,
You have made your impact;
Long lasting are they,
Forever in our memories, you are.

Beautiful were your feet,
As you spread the gospel;
Glorious are your feet,
As you tread the streets of gold;
Privileged were they,
Those you won for Christ;
Comforted are we your kinsmen,
in your Master's word

John 14
18 i will not leave you comfortless...
19...because I live, ye shall also live"

"Pastor, to say that your passing on to Glory came as a rude shock to me would be an unpardonable understatement. Though we didn't know each other for long, you were a tremendous blessing to my husband (of blessed memory), and myself. I have prayed for your wife, that the God who has never failed as a husband to me will comfort her again. I pray that your children will find unspeakable comfort in the Holy Spirit and that this experience for them will be a propelling force into the center of God's will for their lives. You had a large heart for God and His people and we rejoice, that hell has lost you ETERNALLY. You are now a part and parcel of heaven's eternal gain sir. Rest in Glory."

"I am completely short of words because the news of Biodun's translation came to me from a social media platform. What happened?... Knowing that our Redeemer lives, I rest my hope in the FACT that we will DEFINITELY see him again. "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? ...... But thank be unto Go who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

This tribute was added by Yetunde Olaoke on 13th April 2015

"I am short of words Abiodun. I still can’t believe you are gone. I look back at your pictures every day. It is very difficult for me to believe. I ask myself every day why it had to be you, but I know that I cannot question God. You have been a good friend and brother to me. People have seen you for the angel and saint that you are. You were always a hardworking person filled with joy. You were always gentle and kind to everyone - friend or stranger. Even though we were apart, we would speak to each other so much it was almost as if we were back in Nigeria together once again. I love you so much my friend, my brother, my twin and you will always be in my heart.  I will never forget you. I pray that God will comfort and watch over the family you have left behind as only He can relieve the pain and sorrow in their hearts."

"Hand knuckled in anguish.... the only response I could muster when I read about this was.. yeee! afree which I went very numb (and still). An egbon by every standard. Cool and collected by every measure. You fought well and serve God well.... Thank God for you. I pray God will strengthen Sista, the kids, mommy, and the entire family.
See you in the morning, egbon!!"

"Daddy Torinmo, like I always call you. It's so difficult to come to terms with this...I try to understand it but couldn't, so I rest my case in God because that is what you have wanted me to do.  Fond memories of your smile,  your easy way. I remembered how you surprised me during my second baby's birth, I found you washing the bathroom, the pressing iron was bad, you went and came back with a new one. Aah, I know you are in a better place. Good night dear brother."

This tribute was added by Tavershima Anye on 12th April 2015

"My entire family and I are still in shock of your sudden sleep in the Lord's bossom. You stood behind me during my son's and daughter's dedication services, something I will never forget and I will always let my son Aaron and little doomie know of your selfless and godly service you did for them! Its hard to believe and sometimes I am even tempted to ask God why? Who am I? I console myself knowing that He loves better than I can imagine. My heart is heavy and I will greatly miss you sir! Sleep well in the blossom of our Creator. Good night sir!"

This tribute was added by Kovie Parker on 12th April 2015

"Daddy...as i fondly called u... never seen a man so faithful and dedicated.... ur daughter, Oluwatorinmo, was a friend like no other.... U were a father indeed to me... Its so painful and shocking... but God indeed rules over all... we miss u deeply... we love u forever... Rest in His bossom!"

"As I was thinking about writing a tribute
to my Mentor I thought -- How can I say a
few words that do justice to all of the
years of love and strength that He gave
us?  I hope that the real tribute to my Mentor
will be the actions of my (our) lives -- that
we are a testament to the love and
lessons that he instilled in us all! Rest on Sir!"

"Egbon1,
I am short of words to write a tribute in your honor because you exited so quickly and not only shocked everybody but you also stunned us all.
You have been a father, brother, friend, confidant & an encourager who never gave up no matter how terrible the circumstances. Above all, you are a saint of the Almighty God and this is what eventually brings comfort to us and we are not mourning as those that doesn't have hope. The hope of resurrection has taken away the sting of your death.
I am convinced that you have fought a good fight of faith, finished your course in style and have been received up into glory. Your intercession, labor & love for your wife, children & the church of God & indeed us all are to the very end and I am sure will never be in vain.
Why didn't you wait for your 21st wedding anniversary? Why didn't you wait to be celebrated on your 50th? Why didn't you wait to see us all flourish the way you had always wished? Why did you just leave your mum just like that? You left in such a hurry that everytime it comes to mind just opens the flood gate of tears. We all take solace in the comfort and strength that only come from the Holy Spirit and the word of God.
I release you to the will of God, Keep on resting and shinning until the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And you will rise first. Then we shall be caught up together with you in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Amen."

"It is a great honor and privilege to be your one and only sister . Growing up with you was so much fun, as you were a leader from the very beginning . Even as an 'unbeliever' you were so gentle and kind. Very meticulous and so un assuming . You were a natural teacher and gentle to a fault. No wonder God called you into His ministry and you did not disappoint Him
I can remember very well how you plaited my hair, helped me loosen it and packed it for a party. What can't I send you? You will do anything for anyone even at the expense of your own comfort. You taught me how to iron dress and dress up simply , nicely and how to lay bed.
Egbon1, we spoke on Friday and you told me you are ok and it's just malaria, I never knew that was the last time I will be calling you.
You were one special thing to everyone you met, no wonder you are friend even with your junior ones' friends. You left an impression on every life you had contact with. Yours indeed was a gentle soul .
Haaaa. . . . . It pains and hurts but I said it before and I say it again ....... who shall separate us from the love of Christ ? Shall tribulation ,or distress or, persecution, or famine or nakedness , or peril or sword. . . . . . . . . . For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth , nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.
You are a brother to my husband , a sweet uncle and big daddy to my children . Dara is in shock at your departure , so also is Dunsin and Dunni.
We are certain that we shall meet again at the feet of our master, where there is no sighing or weeping or pain or sorrow.
I love you so much, a man with the shepherd's heart, A friendly friend, a brother indeed, my mentor .
Thank you for fighting a good fight of faith. Fare thee well my brother."
